Vale George Martin

 

Rest in peace.

 
So saddened to hear that the great Sir George Martin has passed away. He was such a huge part of what made The Beatles so great – his production on each of their tracks is incredible to listen to, and everything he added to their music enhanced so much of their work, often lifting it from ‘great’ to bonafide masterpiece status. I’ll never forget the first time I heard his mono mix of Revolver; ‘A Day In The Life’s apocalyptic orchestra; ‘In My Life’s beautiful (sped-up) piano; ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’; ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’; ‘Eleanor Rigby’ – all greatly affected by his work. He always seemed a true gentleman, too. 

May he rest in peace.

  1. I’m very late to this, but I just wanted to thank you for this tribute to George Martin. Lately we’ve been losing far too many of the greats, and he certainly was one of them. Thank you, Mr. Martin, for your immortal contributions to music.

  2. You’re most welcome! 2016 has been utterly merciless towards too many greats, and I, too, certainly consider Martin to be among them. He really was a genius – he might just be the greatest (and certainly the most influential) producer in history! I hope he is resting in piece, somewhere with John and George…
